The Elegance of Black and Gold . . .

. . . AND of inverted scallops! Hooray!! The first time I saw a photo of these inverted scallop dies I just about jumped out of my chair!!! I just couldn't wait to share with you what I was able to do with them . . . don't you just LOVE-LOVE-LOVE how you can pair them with the traditional Classic Scallop dies and get such an amazing border????

If you haven't seen it already, click on the link to the right for Michelle Wooderson's blog (Mish Mash) to see how she used these dies to emulate the look of a lovely postage stamp!

Now, I know what you are thinking . . . I NEED me some of those dies!! (And you would be RIGHT about that!!) Be sure to check out Sherry Cheever's blog today (BadSherry on SCS) to see the fabulous new dies she is sneak-peeking for you AND for a chance to win not only the dies she is introducing, but also all of the dies introduced so far this week by Debbie Olson, Michelle Wooderson and Holly Craft as well!!!
